Reporting from the Future of TV

I’m Kauser Kanji and I founded VOD Professional in 2011. Back then, I’d already been working in online video for six years – leading OTT projects at Virgin Media, NBC Universal, ITN and Trinity Mirror – and I started blogging with the aim of understanding industry technologies and figuring out how to build brilliant on-demand services.

Now, in 2020, I do four main things:

  • I talk about the future of TV with broadcasters, film studios, operators, service-providers, suppliers and analysts at my weekly debate show, OTT Question Time. I also host an annual conference called The Business of Future TV
  • I interview senior execs and write reports and whitepapers: commercial, product, strategic and technical 
  • I help vendors with business development by introducing them to customers, hosting and moderating events and with branding, messaging and content writing 
  • And I conduct research and analysis for clients like Netflix, the BBC, Sony Pictures Entertainment, Akamai, TiVo and a range of broadcasters all over the world  

Drop me a line if you’d like to appear on an OTT Question Time panel, speak at our upcoming The Business of Future TV event or want to brief me on a project. 


Some of my recent papers include:

– Broadcaster Strategies for Making OTT Advertising a Success
– The Business Case for Launching a D2C OTT Service
– Technology Infrastructure, Products & Suppliers Review (for a European broadcaster)
– The Business of Future TV: Analysing Performance, Revenues, Opportunities & Challenges in the Next Business Cycle
– Feasibility Study: Transitioning from AVOD to SVOD
